rescued these from the rubbish pile as well- a bunch of vintage scarves. I only took the ones that were pretty colors. All of them are sheer except for one tan one that's satin/silk. They're different sizes- some large and square, some long.

Most of them aren't labeled, but one did have a label that said it was made in France.

I was thinking of making them as a window treatment, but that wouldnt really match my 'country cottage' look. .  .

any ideas?

I use it as a drape between my laundry area of the basement and my craft room. It looks like a huge square-dance skirt! So, I used more of the scarves to make.... a huge square dance skirt. I stapled them all around the waist of a petticoat. Wear it for parades, art events, and Halloween. Posted: 12:00 pm on February 6th

I have used a vintage scarf loosely tied around a theme tree that was aluminum. Mine was a bright pink tone on tone silk scarf and made a great little Christmas tree skirt.
